Big PB Planet applause for Even an Ostrich Needs a Nest: Where Birds Begin by Irene Kelly (Holiday House, 2009). In this fascinating non-fiction book, we're treated to a look at forty birds (from the American Dipper to the Yellow-rumped Hornbill) and their brilliant, beautiful, often bizarre abodes. Wonderful drawings and cool factoids (size, weight, materials, etc.) accompany each entry. (Those containing the words "droppings" and "dung" are sure to get giggles when read aloud!) A well-illustrated, great reference book--and a fun read! Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today!
Welcome to PB Planet!
